Thinking About Taking Up Pilates? Will Clare Brown Pilates Benefit You?

Pilates is a specialised, highly efficient form of exercise tested and endorsed by a broad range of health professionals. Clare Brown Pilates is very effective when you are seeking to address specific joint/muscle issues or the general aches and pains in backs, shoulders, knees etc. brought on by poor posture or intense training. It is good for you whether you are new to exercise or an experienced sports professional seeking to redress muscle imbalances and strengthen your core.

My clients report significant benefits; in their posture, strength, flexibility and general well being and a gradual reduction in recurrent injuries that previously stopped them participating in their favourite activities. More specifically, their reviews express improvements in - core strength, balance, mental focus, sleep, energy levels, sports performance, enhanced recovery from muscle/joint operations and injuries. Clients regularly attending my sessions say they help to alleviate head to toe aches and pains and give relief from the symptoms of stress. My clients ages range from 16-86. There profiles range from; haven't exercised for years, to experienced runners, football players and tri-athletes. They describe thinking more positively and feeling empowered in aquiring a sense of well being.

Pilates With Clare Brown What to expect from our Pilates Sessions

The therapeutic benefits of Clare Brown Pilates sessions include relief from back ache, muscle and joint Pain, improved breathing patterns and de-stressing of the mind and body.
You will develop good postural awareness and improved body alignment. You will achieve this through, calm, focussed, enjoyable mental and physical training.

You will be guided in developing a deep, relaxed breathing technique alongside the exercises. Once the breathing and the exercises become second nature to you (and within a few weeks this starts to happen) you will find this has a calming and balancing effect on your mind and body. We will use mats, blocks and bands, provided until you get your own. Our Pilates sessions will give you an excellent whole body maintenance programme or a wonderful approach to recovery.

You will work to your own level of ability. Whether you're fit and healthy and looking for balanced strength, tone and flexibility throughout your body, injured (with the go ahead from your doctor) or suffering general aches, young/old, male/female, Pilates could really work for you! 

You will meet super people from all walks of life and we certainly have our moments of fun.

Feel Better Through Pilates it's so effective at making you feel better!

  • Pilates will train your mind to become more aware of your body position and to activate a central core of deep postural muscles, which will very effectively strengthen and stabilise you trunk and spine.
  • Stemming out from this strong central core all the muscles of your body are effectively and safely strengthened and tone. Muscle imbalances will be gradually corrected through retraining and reprogramming your muscle memory.
  • Pilates can support the recovery of an injured area of your body by safely strengthening the muscle groups connected to it or surrounding it.
  • Pilates brings together your mind with your body and the double benefit is a strong efficient body and a calm focussed mind.
  • Core-control strengthening has been scientifically proven to reduce back pain. Many of my clients, who were initially referred to me by their doctor or physiotherapist with chronic back pain, cannot believe just how effectively Pilates has reduced their symptoms and need for strong pain killers and improved their overall feeling of wellbeing.

About Me A Brief Intro About Me, My Experience & Training

My name is Clare Brown I have been teaching Pilates around Beeston, Nottingham for 10 years. Pilates cured my troublesome sciatica and had such a positive impact on my general posture and well being that I built it into my life by training to teach it. Initially I taught Pilates part time. My client base built and my Pilates business took over from my established profession as a lecturer and head of department and teaching Pilates became my full time vocation. Anatomy and physiology fascinate me so I happily research extensively. I am interested in how much control we have over our own well being and how addressing postural problems can have a positive impact throughout our body. I enjoy meeting my clients with their vast variety of life experiences, some perfectly healthy and many with conditions to address. I get great fulfilment from supporting them, as they regain confidence in their own body and realise the power they have to heal themselves. Pilates is not a miracle cure and predictably it works better with regular practice. Many clients have avoided other forms of exercise for fear of exacerbating their problems but they come and make great progress; the benefits are clear in their improved performance week by week. I believe that through a better understanding of your own body posture and a safe, regular, Pilates exercise plan, you have the power to improve the quality of your life and reduce the risk of injury and pain. Our bodies are designed for movement and Pilates is movement designed to work in harmony with your body’s structure. I totally believe in the positive effects of Pilates and I think it’s also fun and enjoyable as I have a great bunch of people attending my sessions.
